Reopening Guidance for Businesses in South Africa

In spite of the growing numbers of coronavirus cases in the country, the government is determined to reopen businesses for the sake of the economy. South Africa has modified its restrictions to allow industries such as manufacturing, mining, construction, financial services, professional and business services, information technology, communications, government services, wholesale and retail, and media services to operate at a reduced capacity under strict health and safety protocols prescribed by the authority.

To help business owners implement and mandate safety protocols, we have compiled reopening guidance checklists to help improve the safety of workers and consumers against COVID-19.

Disclaimer: Please note that these checklists are hypothetical examples and provide basic information only. They are not intended to take the place of medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. You should also seek professional advice to determine if the use of such checklists are permissible in your workplace or jurisdiction.
